In the climate change context, financing for mitigation is well-established while financing for adaptation is still on the learning curve. This session will present recent experience with various sources of funds and financing instruments including blended finance, insurance policies, non-traditional donor funds. Case studies of corporate restructuring and reinvention may also be included.
Potential topics in this session could include:
- Legal, regulatory, and financial instruments for “anti-fragility”
- Insurance for the 21st century including nature-based defenses for protection of coastal infrastructure
- Case studies in adaptation finance
- Future-proofing energy companies and corporate evolution
